Welcome! This time I’ve gathered together some of the awesome dies, stamps and ephemera pieces in Tina Ollett’s Seaside Girl Collection to create another laid back and relaxing layout. I had a few different die cuts and stamps left over from another project so I just added to them to make this layout. I had a mix of different cardstock, acetate and glitter card colours that I used for the stamping and die cutting.
The edges of the cardstock and ephemera pieces were inked, also distressed the the card base that the photo mounted onto.
I cut the ends of the sentiments to make them look like weathered signs, inked the edges and shaped them a little.
I used the stayz ink for the stamps on the acetate then coloured them with a mix of 3 colours of alcohol inks using the blending tips.
Next I prepared the 12″ designer page with some clear embossed waves in the area where I thought it would be outside the photo area.
Once all the pieces were prepared, it was just a matter of mounting and gluing them in place.
The bigger pieces were backed with cardboard and the smaller pieces were either glued with the tacky glue or if it needed more height I used the liquid scrap spots.
I wrapped the photo with string and also added a string bow to the arrangement.
Some artsy stones, glitter glue and resin bubbles where added randomly to finish the project.
